The benefits of acupuncture frequently include more than just relief from pain or alleviation of a particular condition. Many people find that it can also lead to increased energy levels, as well as improved appetite and sleep, an enhanced sense of overall well-being and a better ability to cope with the stresses of life. See below for a few ways in which acupuncture can help you.
Insomnia and disrupted sleep:
Having a good night’s sleep is so important, not just for “beauty” but also for your physical and emotional wellbeing. Lack of sleep can affect your co-ordination, ability to react quickly, memory, concentration, thinking and mood. Whether you have problems getting to sleep or staying asleep, acupuncture can be of help.
Acupuncture can help regulate the menstrual cycle, and reduce pre-menstrual symptoms (PMT/PMS) such as irritability, mood swings and breast pain. It can also help reduce recurring attacks of thrush (candidiasis) and clear a current episode. There can also be beneficial effects for you if you are peri-menopausal or in the menopause.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), constipation and diarrhoea can also be treated.
Respiratory conditions, allergies and colds:
If you have more than two colds a year, that’s a cold too many. Come in and have your immune system boosted to help you stay healthy and fit through the year.
If you dread the arrival of Spring because your hay fever prevents you from leading a normal life, a course of preventive acupuncture can be the answer.
Tiredness and lack of energy:
Tiredness is a common complaint in today’s modern living. If you have myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) or multiple sclerosis (MS) acupuncture can help support you.
Recurrent attacks of bladder conditions such as cystitis are not only painful but can drain your energy. Acupuncture treatment helps strengthen the body’s resistance to bladder infections and reduce the severity of an acute attack.
